Title: What happened to the fortune MJ made?
Post by: topsecretgirl on March 16, 2010, 05:17:40 PM
This article (New York Times) I found is from 2006. I thought it was interesting. ;)
Because it is a 5 page article I'm gonna give you the link:

Don't pay any attention to that article MJ always kept track of how much he was making and don't forget he made and still makes tons of money from owning half of Sony and owning Sony ATV and many many musical catalogs. He probably makes more owning The Beatles Catalog than any other one he owns.

He doesn't own half of Sony.. he sold Sony half of his publishing venture in the mid 90's.

The entire company of Sony is worth a hell of a lot more than even MJ could ever dream of controlling 50% of. It's a publicly owned/traded company on the Japanese and NYE markets.

MJ bought ATV Music for $47.5 million in 1985 and what I find funny is that the price adds up to 7.
4+7+5=16  1+6=7

Another 7 to add to the 7 list.

MJ owns half of Sonys PUBLISHING...   half of their music catalogue.

And what happened to his fortune?   Well i think he spent a lot of it, and a heck of a lot of money was wasted on lawyers to pay for stupid court cases.

That's true, but you think all MJ's fortune, that was HUGEEE, just went away like that?? Because I really don't believe he was all broke like everyone is trying us to think. But I really don't know, that's why I ask.
